  1. I've used this script to link Arma text chat to Google's Diagflow for a hack day once and it was awesome! I'm going to be using it again for an arty script. Great work!

    Line Drawing

    ATM we do this with markers = []; { marker = [ _x, //0 markerAlpha _x, //1 markerBrush _x, //2 markerColor _x, //3 markerDir _x, //4 markerPos _x, //5 markerShape _x, //6 markerSize _x, //7 markerText _x, //8 markerType _x //9 ]; markers set [count markers, marker]; } forEach allMapMarkers; copyToClipboard str(markers); to serialize markers made by the CO in the editor when planning, then: { _mk = createMarker [_x select 0, _x select 5]; _mk setMarkerAlpha (_x select 1); _mk setMarkerBrush (_x select 2); _mk setMarkerColor (_x select 3); _mk setMarkerDir (_x select 4); _mk setMarkerShape (_x select 6); _mk setMarkerSize (_x select 7); _mk setMarkerText (_x select 8); _mk setMarkerType (_x select 9); } forEach markers; To put them into the mission at the start so they don't have to re-do them

    ^ This I would like to be able to serialize user made markers (including drawings) for later placement to ease pre-planning. Old markers are easy enough, but I can't find commands for drawings.

    Tanks DLC Feedback

    The commander and gunner should be able to talk about what the gunner is looking at in detail without having to make the commander use their independent sight to do so, thus losing the sector it was covering.

    Tanks DLC Feedback

    I saw it mentioned occasionally, but will there be the feature to allow the commander to override the turret to show the gunner the target he wants engaged immediately? In addition to this will the commander be able to see what the gunner is seeing in addition to their own independent view? These 2 features would be essential to get some realistic gunner commander teamwork.
  6. We use it for all our mission and training sessions and my guys love it! We miss it with some of the new unsupported terrains though, so any extra development you can put in will definitely be appreciated! Thank you for all you have done so far.
  7. Thanks, it worked perfectly! Strange it at least partially passed linting. It said that the structure was correct but that it wasn't accurate. I thought it was a standards nitpick.
  8. Hello We have a problem, where we used OCAP for our first full mission and exported it's AAR with [] call ocap_fnc_exportData; but the OCAP web app says that the file is not found when we try and play it back, despite the JSON file being in the correct place and passing linting tests and there being a correct reference to it in the DB. Our OCAP version is and we tested before with simpler scenarios and with fewer people and it worked fine. OCAP is on the same machine as the Arma server and thus uses the non FTP method. Here is our OCAP URL: http://srv1.zulu-alpha.co.za/ocap/. The mission in question is co@24_Transporter_r#_HC. The error message we get is this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3gvgdmucozuh9vy/ocap_error.jpg?dl=0 These are the OCAP files in our data folder: https://www.dropbox.com/s/enlsaxv0z0i07k2/ocap_data_file_structure.jpg?dl=0 Here is the OCAP recording file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jc7awmdfoo9yt3c/co%4024_Transporter_r4_167.json?dl=0 Here is our OCAP DB: https://www.dropbox.com/s/4x83ogdahsha0rk/data.db?dl=0 Here is our OCAP log file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/9ta7v7tw46chuza/ocap_log.txt?dl=0 And here is our Arma RPT: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ctjpg73w5sf32xd/arma3server_2016-09-15_13-23-13.rpt?dl=0. The mission starts at 20:46. Hopefully all these links makes it easier for you to determine the problem (assuming it's a bug with OCAP and not a mistake on our side).
  9. We managed to install it and get it working on WIndows server 2012 R2 using IIS8. I tried to get it working with Apache24 but no matter what I tired I couldn't get gzip and php curl working. This is most certainly a problem on my side as we don't use a LAMP (or WAMP) stack on the server that we manage and I'm not familiar with it. Some notes to everyone who wants to use IIS8: I got PHP curl working out of the box when I installed PHP 7 from the Microsoft web platform installer To get GZIP working, make sure you have Web Server -> Performance -> Static Content Compression & Dynamic Content Compression server roles installed using the Add roles and features wizard. Then in the configuration editor in IIS Manager for your server, make sure you add application/json (and enable it) to system.webServer/httpCompression/dynamicTypes/ @mistergoodson: Is it safe to manually delete the events with a SQLite browser (in order to cleanup)? Also I think I noticed a bug where I exported twice (once at 4 mins and another time at 11 mins) and I got 3 recordings in the DB and on the site but with only 2 JSON files. 2 of the recordings where correct and expected, but the 2nd one (chronologically) said it was 11 minutes long but used the 4 minute long JSON file. Not sure if I should report this in the repo as I only tried this once. I am using a fresh install of Version Beta.
  10. Thank you for releasing this! We will definitely make use of this for our community!

    Arma 3 Units - Feedback thread

    I noticed a potential bug. When I want to add a Slack URL for my existing Slack channel entry, then I get the error: Invalid data for comm_channels.[1].type, got: "Slack" The URL that seems to pass client side validation but fail server side validation is https://zulu-alpha.slack.com.

    Mine Detector

    Hello, great mod! I would like to know, is the PWS repo here up to date? It says v1.11.0.2 on the page and v1.17 when I use PWS, but it says it was updated on the 17th of July, so I am quite confused right now.

    Arma 3 Units - Feedback thread

    I like the update and the linking of Steam to BI Accounts! I would just like to know how the plans are going, if any for a public API? We built our own platform that automatically manages Squad XML, sign on with steam, slack integration and will soon have TeamSpeak server group integration, skills management and Google Calendar integration among other things and so I would like to have it also manage the Units page to synchronize members and ranks in order to reduce management overhead.

    roleDescription not working in SP

    I confirm that it doesn't work in Eden editor single-player. Annoying as I was going to use it to replace the init field as that doesn't work at all for JIP players now
  15. I made a short video tutorial for my community: I'm posting it here in case anyone else finds it useful.
